1. Purpose. To provide policy and instructions on Marine Combat Water Survival Training (MCWST). 2. Cancellation. MCO 1500.52B.

3. Summary of Revision. This Order no longer includes task-oriented material due to the publication of reference (a). Additionally, this revision more clearly articulates policy guidance, establishes swim qualification ratings and associated prerequisites further standardizing Combat Water Survival Training. 4. Background. In accordance with Marine Corps Strategy 21, the MCWST program is designed to prepare Marines for deployment to diverse, austere, and chaotic environments. Marines, inherently naval in character, are expected to operate in the world's littoral regions and other aquatic environments. To this end, the MCWST program should equip Marines with the requisite knowledge and skills to negotiate water obstacles and survive in emergency situations involving water. The MCWST program uses a building block approach, employing successive water qualification levels of increasing difficulty that improve both skills and confidence in water. While qualification requirements vary repsective to rank and/or Military Occupational Specialty (MOS), the program is designed to maintain water survival skills during a Marine's career. Reference (b) contains information regarding specific techniques and procedures for water survival training.

MCO 1500.52C 31 Jul 04 5. Safety Education. MCWST techniques and the associated conditioning that accompanies their application are rigorous. The ability to safely and professionally conduct MCWST techniques is very important. Accordingly, Operational Risk Management (ORM), per reference (c), should be employed in all phases of training to minimize injuries. Reference (d) can be located via the World Wide Web on the Naval Safety Center's homepage at www.safetycenter.navy.mil. Safety parameters should be established for all individual and group training, and practiced and reinforced by Marine Combat Instructors of Water Survival (MCIWS) and Marine Combat Instructor Trainers of Water Survival (MCITWS). a. ORM assessments are continuous and are the responsibility of each instructor providing training. b. Accurate, detailed, and timely incident reporting assists in the monitoring of the effectiveness of training and identifies potential safety hazards. An injury during water survival training that requires emergency medical personnel to respond will be reported per reference (e) to Headquarters, Marine Corps (HQMC), Safety Division (SD) and Commanding General (CG) Training and Education Command (TECOM) (C461). The narrative will include: specific Program of Instruction (POI) element being executed at the time of the mishap (e.g., qualification or CWSS or MCIWS courses); qualification being attempted (e.g., CWS4, CWS3, CWS2, etc.); student's current qualification; date of the incident; location of incident; instructor's certification level; expiration date; and the description of the pool facilities. 6. General Information. The objective of combat water survival training is to teach individual Marines how to survive in various aquatic environments. Accordingly, the aim of combat water survival training is to reduce fear of the water, raise self-confidence, and develop an ability to survive in water. Mastery of basic survival strokes is very important; however, it is more important that Marines demonstrate a working knowledge of basic survival strokes, rather than execute them to "textbook" perfection. a. MCWST requirements are developed in conjunction with the American Red Cross (ARC). b. Combat water survival qualification and requalification will be conducted in accordance with reference (a) and recorded on a calendar year (CY) basis. c. Duties Involving Flight Operations. The term "aircrew" refers to all Marine Corps personnel (officer/enlisted) in an active flight status. While in an active flight status, aircrews are subject to the regulations and procedures contained in reference (f) and the Naval Aviation Water Survival Training Program, vice the Marine Corps Water Survival Program. Once off active flight status, individual Marines are subject to MCWST regulations, and have 90 days to qualify at the required level or will be considered unqualified. 7. Qualification. All Marines regardless of age, grade, or component will qualify and requalify per the following guidelines or as required per the regulations and procedures contained in references (a), (f), and (g). a. UNQ - Remedial swim training until qualified.

2

MCO 1500.52C 31 Jul 04 b. CWS4 - Minimum qualification requirement for enlisted Marines; requalify every year. c. CWS3 - Requalify every two years.

d. CWS2 - Minimum qualification requirement for officers; requalify every three years. e. f. CWS1 - Requalify every four years. WSQ - Requalify every six years.

g. Requalification must take place before the expiration date of current level. To attain a higher qualification, Marines must qualify at the next higher level before current level expiration date. A Marine must requalify at CWS4 if: (1) The current level qualification date has lapsed. (2) The Marine is unable to requalify at the current level. h. Marines unable to participate in or pass the required qualification because of a limited duty status at the time of the officially scheduled testing will complete testing no later than 60 days from return to full duty. A limited duty status (requiring a medical officer's recommendation) will be entered into the Marine Corps Total Force System (MCTFS) per reference (h), only if the convalescent/limited duty period extends beyond the expiration date of the Marine's current swim qualification. Permanent waivers of swim qualification are not authorized. i. Exemptions to Requalification Requirements. All Marines, regardless of age, rank, or time in service, must obtain and maintain a valid swim qualification during their careers. Marines stationed at the commands listed below are exempt for the duration of their tour. However, those Marines are encouraged to requalify and advance their swim qualification if the opportunity is available. Marines exempt from requalification may be directed to requalify at the discretion of their commanding officer at anytime. (1) Commanding generals have the authority to exempt Marines in their commands for current CYs. Requests for exemptions will be forwarded to commanding generals, via the chain of command with a copy to CG, TECOM (C461).

Marine Combat Water Survival Training Billet Descriptions. MCWST is based on a "train the trainer" concept, and implemented through a systems approach to training with an emphasis placed on common skills required of all Marines. The hierarchy of MCWST: a. Chief Instructor Trainer, MCWST. The Chief Instructor Trainer advises the Director, CWSSS, on overall development of MCWST. He/she is resident at the CWSSS, and is responsible for the research, development, and performance of the techniques and procedures taught in MCWST. The Chief Instructor Trainer must be a MCITWS who can train and certify MCITWSs. Additional responsibilities include monitoring the quality of MCWST training throughout the Marine Corps, to include the recruit depots and basic officer water survival training, as well as conducting CWSS/MCIWS courses as needed. b. Marine Combat Instructor Trainer of Water Survival (MCITWS)- AMOS 8563. The MCITWS trains and certifies MCIWSs and conducts water survival training through CWSS certification. To be designated a MCITWS, a Marine must meet prerequisites contained in this Order and successfully complete the MCITWS Course. MCITWS certification is valid for three years. (1) To maintain currency, a MCITWS must conduct a minimum of one MCIWS certification course per CY or the command will suspend his/her MCITWS qualification until recertified. If MCITWS certification lapses, the Marine will automatically revert to a MCIWS. If this occurs, the Marine can still conduct MCWST courses as a MCIWS until his/her certification ends or until they recertify as a MCITWS or MCIWS. (2) Recertification for MCITWSs may take place at the CWSSS, or any other location, provided the current recertification standards are utilized. The recertifying MCITWS must hold both a current ARC Lifeguard Instructor Trainer and MCITWS certification. (3) All MCITWSs, regardless of locale, can instruct, and certify or recertify a MCIWS if their curriculum and facilities satisfy all course requirements per the approved POI.

7

MCO 1500.52C 31 Jul 04 c. Marine Combat Instructor of Water Survival (MCIWS)- AMOS 8563. Conducts water survival training and is authorized to qualify to the CWSS level. MCIWS certification or recertification is valid for three years. (1) To maintain currency, a MCIWS must conduct a minimum of one qualification session per CY or the command will suspend his/her MCIWS qualification and the AMOS 8563 until recertified. If MCIWS certification lapses, the Marine will have to go through the MCIWS course again. In addition, the MCIWS will automatically revert to CWSS and cannot conduct MCWST until recertified. (2) Recertification for MCIWSs may take place at the CWSSS, or any other location, provided the current recertification standards are utilized. The recertifying MCITWS must hold both a current ARC Lifeguard Instructor Trainer and MCITWS certification. d. Combat Water Safety Swimmer (CWSS). A CWSS is trained to perform water rescues in tactical or training environments. CWSSs possess the knowledge necessary to advise commanders on conducting aquatic training. Marines certified as CWSSs may assist MCIWSs/MCITWSs during courses of instruction and may serve as safety swimmers for pool and other aquatic training. A CWSS cannot conduct MCWST. CWSS certification is valid for three years and renewable after recertification by a qualified MCIWS/MCITWS. If CWSS certification lapses, the Marine automatically reverts to WSQ, requiring an appropriate entry be made in the MCTFS. 10. Instructor Responsibilities. All instructors will ensure compliance with this Order and CG, TECOM (C461) approved POIs, with emphasis on safety and qualifying standards. a. Instructor Record. Ensure submission of NAVMC Form 11209, Instructor's Course Record, enclosure (1) to the appropriate commands and the Director, CWSSS, immediately upon completion of each course. b. Safety Requirements. When conducting swim training, qualification, or requalification, MCITWSs/MCIWSs are responsible for ensuring that corpsmen are present at all times and equipped with medic bag, backboard, and safety vehicle. The CWSSS, EWTGPAC, and Entry Level Training (ELT) sites (MCRDs and TBS) are exempt from this requirement due to the presence of an advanced level of supervision, number of qualified instructors, and the pool facilities' close proximity to emergency medical services. c. Instructor/Student Ratio. During number of students will not exceed 10 per this rule, if qualified CWSSs are present supervise up to six CWSSs, with each CWSS the conduct of MCWST, the maximum instructor. As an exception to during MCWST, a MCIWS or MCITWS can supervising up to five students.

d. Civilian Augmentees. Civilians certified as ARC lifeguards working at pools may only be used to assist qualified MCITWSs/MCIWSs, but are not authorized to conduct any classes or certifications. 11. MCWST Courses Available a. Marine Combat Instructor Trainer of Water Survival (MCITWS) Course
